Tasting notes
Appearance: morello cherry red with violet reflections. Nose: medium-high intensity. The varietal aromas of red fruits predominate with a subtle hint of the toasting of wood. Palate: elegant and balanced in the mouth. Aftertaste: very fruity varietal.

100% Mencia elaborated from grapes chosen from more than 80-year old vines from the high areas of the Bierzo region. After its vinification it remains in French and American Oak barrels for two months. The nose is subtle with sweet nuances of fruit. Very attractive and inviting. On the palate you can find fresh and clean flavors of berries and sweet spices. The finish is pleasant and very inviting.

2008: 90 Points - Jay Miller, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Cuatro Pasos is 100% Mencia sourced from 70- to 80-year-old vines in pure slate at the highest elevation of the DO. It was aged for 2 months in French and American oak. Deep crimson-colored, it displays an enticing nose of lightly roasted red fruits, graphite, creme de cassis, and red licorice. Dense, super-ripe, and exceptionally concentrated, this mouth-filling effort is a remarkable bargain in savory red wine. Drink it over the next 2-3 years. "
